also I bought this excellent looking little flipbook from snaughtie on etsy and I am putting it into my coping skills toolkit.
This is super great. They have a PDF version you can purchase. It also has some blank spots that you can put in words they don’t have. Perfect for when you need help communicating.
This is a great simplified communication tool.
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
Lucy Flores was born into an impoverished family of 13 children, abandoned by her mother in grade school, fell into a gang, was sentenced to youth prison, and dropped out of high school. Now, she’s a lawyer and legislator, and currently running for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada.
“There are Lucys in every town across this state. That’s why my focus is on making sure that this is a state that works for every Nevadan, not just the privileged few.”
